Pump it Up!
Why am I talking about it today? Because every time I have to throw away a bottle with an inch or more of product still in the bottom because the sprayer hose doesn't reach the last of the product it makes me cranky. Sometimes when I can be arsed I will transfer the last of the old into a new bottle because as sure as there is little green apples the new bottle of perfume, lotion or household cleaner isn't 'full' when you buy it either.
Yesterday I came to the bottom of my favorite perfumed lotion that is about $15 a bottle. No, not a fortune by any means, but not cheap either. Every time I either give up and throw that last little bit away, which is about two full body applications worth, or go through the laborious process of transferring it to the new bottle it irritates the crap out of me.
I had a boss once who traded in his Mercedes sedan after about a year. He'd paid cash for it and his wife loved driving it but he traded it in and they bought an SUV. He said he got really irked every time he had the car serviced. It seems the cost of service and repairs on a Mercedes is very expensive. He said it's not enough to be able to afford the car, but you have to be able to afford to take care of it. He said he could afford it, but he just resented the hell out of it, so he got rid of the car.
Guess I better change perfume, lotion and cleaner. Because it sure bugs me to throw the unused away.
